As I am very interested in computer hardware but do not want to waste some valuable hardware, I decided to upgrade an old PC with an ECS H61H2-M12 motherboard. One of the changes I want to make is to upgrade the processor from a Core i3-2100 to a Core i7-2700K.
Problem: when I install the i7, the computer doesn't start (fans and lights are on, but nothing apears on screen) and it works again when I put back the i3. Could the solution bo to update the BIOS ?
PS: I already tried an update and it told me something like 'failed because ME_UNLOCK is not shorted' and I don't really know what it means so I prefer to ask the question before breaking anything.
